First chance to impress overnight for Craig.
All 5 fit seamers playing.
Most likely 1 innings per side freindly so 2 maybe 3 spells to outbowl Mr Ball.
Then possibly a chance with bat if England manage to lose 7 wickets to WA 2nd XI.

A Cricinfo article is suggesting that Craig is in line for a place in the first Ashes Test!

For those inhabiting more obscure areas* of the globe you can access live streaming of the Ashes series - including the current warm-up match - if you subscribe to the Cricket Australia service. For AUD$49.99 you get a year's access.
Check out the CA website.

*obscure areas = most of continental Europe, Guernsey (not Jersey though) South America, Greenland, the Faroes, some Pacific island nations, some non-crickety Caribbean islands. Sadly Grizzzly no Canada nor, Grockle, Oman. There is a link to full details and list of available regions on the CA website. I don't know enough about VPNs to know if one would work for this.

Let's hope Craig gets to bowl with some of the new ball tomorrow

Thanks Bagpuss.

It seems my choices are to explore VPN options, or move to Greenland.

I think I'll choose the former !

Well done Craig, no one expects playing in Australia is easy. England needs a strong bowling line-up for the times when Jimmy is not firing and you are one of them

It's good experience for Craig Overton. Let's hope that he learns from it quickly.



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Steven Finn on his way home after tearing a cartilage in his knee. He must've done something really bad in a past life, the luck he gets, poor bloke

Yes, really tough on Finn - though he shouldn't have been called up in the first place. I hope they go for a batsman now, maybe Livingstone or Northeast...

Does anyone know what happened in the practice before the Perth friendly? How did we manage to lose 2 players before a ball was bowled

Alas, Cove made no runs today, but he will bowl brilliantly tomorrow. You read it here first.
